TO UNCLE CARLS FAMIYL-
I WAS SHOCKED TO HEAR OF UNCLE CARLS PASSING AT EMORY HOSPITAL FOLLOWING A SUCCESSFUL SURGERY.. HE HAD JUST BEEN DOWN TO OUR HOUSE A COUPLE DAYS AGO VISITING MY DAD WITH HIS SICKNESS... CARL AND GEN HAD BROUGHT OUR FAMILY SOME GOOD FOOD TO SHARE WITH US TOO. WE ALL TALKED AND RECALLED A LOT OF OUR PAST TIMES TOGETHER ESPECIALLY DEER HUNTING. WHETHER IT WAS THE FOOTHILLS OF BRASTOWN BALD MT. OR THE SWAMPS OF BEAVER DAM REFUGE IN A CAMPER FOR SEVERAL DAYS I WILL NEVER FORGET THEM PRECIOUS TIMES.
MY DAD WELDON COLSTON, AND CARL HUNTING TOGETHER WE'RE NEVER NONE BETTER TO HUNT A BIG BUCK. I LEARNED A LOT FROM THEM TWO AS I ENJOY THE OUTDOORS AND FARMING TILL THIS DAY. I BOUGHT MOST OF MY JEEPS AND TRUCKS FROM HIM AND STILL ROAMING THE WOODS NOW.
HE WAS A GOOD MENTOR AND BEST UNCLE TO ME AND NEVER WILL FORGET ANY OF THE MEMORIES OUR FAMILIES HAD TOGETHER. HE ALWAYS WANTED TO HELP A NEIGHBOR , A STRANGER, OR ANYONE DOWN ON THEIR LUCK, CARL WAS THERE TO HELP . HE WAS ONE OF A KIND AND HARD FOR ME TO TAKE HIM LEAVING US. YOU KNOW HIS PAINS AND SUFFERING ARE OVER NOW AND GONE ON HOME TO SEE US SOON--RANDY, WELDON, AND BETTY COLSTON
